What I like best about Rhino Food is their “ready-to-eat” foods. They prepare egg rolls, colored tapioca pearls desserts, spring rolls and other snacks and appetizers fresh every day. I would recommend heading there for these goodies early in the morning since everything is in packages. Towards the afternoon, the foods get cold, soggy, dried and not as tasty. 

I do have to say, though, despite my like for their ready-to-eat foods, I’m not a fan of their products and fresh produce. Many of their items cost a lot more than other oriental stores’. The aisles are also very small and things are randomly placed on the floor, making it difficult to move around with a shopping cart. For Asian ingredients and fresh veggies, I would rather go to Viet Hoa.

I enjoy shopping at Viet Hoa when I visit Milwaukee. In addition to its wide selection of products, Viet Hoa also has cooked, wrapped spring rolls and meat and taro-filled buns. The customer service here is not the friendliest, but if customer service is not too important to you, it’s not a bad store for Asian ingredients and goods. Below are two customer reviews of Viet Hoa:

“Lots of variety‎”
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 By JNMerlion – Dec 20, 2008
Butcher, Asian vegetables, seafood, tons of sauces, rice, noodles and more. Our family frequents this shop for food supplies. Not the best in decor but the goods are usually fresh and that’s the most important.‎
 
“Great selection”‎

Viet Hoa is a great grocery store for finding any ingredient you need to make Asian food. I just went there looking for some curry paste to make a few Thai dishes, and came out with all sorts of interesting items. They also have a great selection of sauces, noodles and snacks. Finally, they have an in-store butcher, so you can get some of those hard to find cuts such as pork belly. I would highly recommend.‎
